Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies (CWST) operates a network of forty shot peening facilities in eighteen countries. These facilities were established to service manufacturers who are usually within a 100-mile (160 km) radius. Each facility is unique in that they are designed based on the regional customers’ product mix. The Brampton, Ontario facility opened in 1969 to service McDonnell Douglas in our 85,000 sq. ft. facility—our largest shot peening location in North America. It was designed to perform wing skin forming and job shop peening. The following aircraft had their wings formed at this location: C17 Globemaster (170-foot wingspan), MD-80 and MD-90. Additionally, all types and sizes of aircraft, landing gear, engine parts and structures have been, and are still, shot peened at this location. General industrial, automotive, mining, and other markets also utilize this site for their shot peening needs. The facility is within the Greater Toronto Area, five minutes from major highways, and 10 minutes from Toronto International Airport.
